    Federal Court rules Most obamacare subsidies Illegal[W:286]

    Fed appeals court panel says most Obamacare subsidies illegal

    The ruling just came in and is a huge blow to the obama administration.
    The 3 judge panel ruled that only people on state run exchanges qualified per the law.

    This could pretty much end obamacare as we know if it the SCOTUS rules the same way.
    the administration of course will appeal.

    Well? Let's just add one more thing to the list of failures in that law.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    what is interesting is that this came out of the DC court of appeals which is the one that obama was trying to stack because they were destroying him on just about everything.
    i guess this stacking attempt didn't work.

    The ruling makes sense given that the government used the definition of "state" to mean actual states so as to exclude US Territories from the law.

    Can't say that "state" means a state on one hand and "state" to be "government" on the other.

    Kill it, tear it up, and reform the former system to include the uninsured in a more equitable manner.

    Drunk with power and an insatiable thirst to make the history books, this cast of socialist clowns completely botched this whole thing.

    Healthcare quality has taken a step backward, and costs are soaring for millions who struggled already but don't qualify for subsidies. $100 co-pays and $5,000 deductibles aren't doable for most people.

    If this ruling stands which many think it will then millions are going to have their subsidies go up even more.
    however given that there are 0 subsidies to be given then they can get out of the law all together and so can their employer.

    it would set 36 states free of obamacare.

    This was only three judges. Lets see if there is a change when/if the full third circuit hears the case.

    that is neither here or there that is the ruling that they passed down. the administration can appeal to full court or they can appeal to the SCOTUS.
    not sure which one they are goign to do, but the current ruling is that the subsidies based on the law as written is illegal.

    i guess this is why you should read something before you pass it.

    An Executive Order will make things right again.
    One that says the United States is in essence one big State.
    And then I betcha any number of commentators & posters here will agree.

    How bad is it for Obama's folly? You can still require people to buy insurance.
